5 survey checks in 5 days

September 25th, 2009 at 07:01 pm

I usually save my monthly medical survey update for the end of the month but I had a particularly good week. As I posted last month, I had gotten out of the habit of doing all the surveys I get offered and my survey income had really dropped off as a result. So I hunkered down and started doing as many as I could again. There is some lag time between when I do a survey and when I get paid so that renewed commitment is starting to show up in the mail.

This week, I received one survey check each day from Monday through Friday for payments that totaled $210. There are still 4 more mailing days in September so I can't give a monthly total yet but this week alone I've earned more than in all of August or all of July. It is just totally stupid when I don't do these surveys. I need someone to smack me when I get in those ruts.

    That is great! I think the rut you are talking about is the same one that people lead themselves into about anything that is actually good for them... exercise, eating right, whatever. My mom used to ask the rhetorical question - "Why do we do what we do when we know what we know?" =) The questionnaires that you answer, are they mostly from pharma companies, or do health insurance companies send them out as well? Just wondering...

    That is awesome! My mail box findings were nothing like that this week. Keep up the good work.

    Fess up and we'll smack you! Too good a deal to pass up, that's for sure.

    Jerry, the surveys are pretty much all from market research firms working, I'm sure, on behalf of pharma companies. Most of the time, I can figure out who is sponsoring the survey based on the nature of the questions.
